Forget that long commute and the structured 9-5 work day. Make it a thing of the past by starting up your own home-based business, where you can work at home and be your own boss. More and more people are leaving the office setting behind for the comfort of their own home.

 

Two types of home-based businesses allowed in Edmonton.

 

 

Minor Home-Based Businesses are those that are considered to have no impact on the neighbours and are basically invisible. Typical businesses would be consultants, computer programmers and other service-oriented businesses where the proprietor goes to the customer rather than the customer coming to the home.


Some regulations include:


• There cannot be more than one visit to your home each day because of your business.
• There cannot be any non-resident employees or business partners working on-site at any time.
• Your business cannot change the principal character or external appearance of the residential property.

 

Major Home-Based Businesses are those businesses that are visible and may involve the customer coming to the home or some other use of the property that is not typical of a residential area. Major home occupations will allow more business visits and also allow you to have employees. Typical businesses are hair dressers or lawn maintenance companies.


Some regulations include:


• There can be more than one visit to your home each day because of your business.
• There can only be two non-resident employees or business partners working on-site any one time.
• No outdoor business activity, or outdoor storage of material or equipment associated with the business is allowed.
• This type of business can not be located in homes that have a secondary suite.
